HC Deb 20 February 1918 vol 103 cc755-6W

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office if he will have an inquiry made into the case of Lance-Corporal H. Bury, No. 17,864, 67th Training Reserve Battalion, who joined the Colours on the 4th April, 1917, and who at the time of his enlistment made an allotment to his mother and put in a claim for dependant's separation allowance and owing to some misunderstanding filled in. a second form later when in training, and when, after unreasonable delay, payment was made to the mother the allowance only dated from the 26th July; and, as. repeated applications have been made without effect for the arrears between the 4th April and 26th July to which the mother is entitled, will he see that the outstanding payment is made at once?


Payment of these arrears was made last week.
